Question about Bialetti Moka Express 6-Cup Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Not sure what volume my moka express is? how can i tell? i have 1 octagon aluminum unit, and 1 stainless unit. both have pressure relief valves. how are the cups measured?

They do not look like standard u.s. cup volumes. maybe i need the metric equivalents? inside aluminum octagon base has 'V5' and '1995' cast; base of bottom piece is 3 7/8" across flat to flat side; nothing stamped inside circular Stainless base. bottom of base measures 3 5/16" diameter

SOURCE: Handle of Bialetti Moka Express 10 cup...

There is a tiny pin at the top where the handle slides into a slot between 2 aluminum walls. That pin needs to be "punched" out. I used a nail and hammer, but a tiny nail punch might be safer if you have one.

SOURCE: 6 cup moka express only making 1 cup of coffee

Sat on the stove and did nothing! Fire the credent!!!Is the water getting hot enough? Here is an idea, take it back to the store and get a dufferent model, or a straight across echange.I have a notion to buy one just to take it apart and see whats going on, There are so many on this forum I don't knpw whythey are bothered wirh. No offense to your preference and good taste but if twas and seriously fond of expresso, buy one at a t a restaraunt supply store. I'm sorry that was not an answer abd I know those machines are way over priced. It is frustrating me and I don't care for expresso myself. Take it bake and raise cain over it.. Expired warrantee or not. Send me a copy of the receipt and I'll write or call the manufacturer myself. Let me have their phone number, also. Ned Cook

SOURCE: Lost the measuring cup! Does anyone know how much

There is a line inside the water compartment, look for the rectangles that go from the bottom up in the walls, there is a line above them... that is the level for gas stoves, for electric ones just put a little more.

Unable to locate what I think is the pressure relief valve located under the on/off box. looks like a small needle valve but leaks air constantly. any ideas?

If it leaks constantly until the tank is empty or very low, the problem is most likely a leaking check valve. The pressure relief valves mission is to empty the pressure line between the chech valve and the sylingers to facilitate unloaded restart of the motor. The check valve is usually mounted directly on the tank an connected to the large copper tube from the sylinders as well as the relief valve through a smaller and thinner tube (often nylon). Empty the tank, unplug the power and open the unscrew the cap of the check valve and retreive the spring and the valve disk and inspect for damages, foreign objects or replace if needed. Refit it and test run the compressor. If your problem is that the relief valve leaks only while compressor is running and just after it stops, the problem is likely to be the relief valve itself. This is usually an integrated and rather delicate part of the pressostat (pressure, on off switch box) and you may need to replace it as a unit unless you can clean it by pressurized air or gently dismantle it for inspection and cleaning or removing foreign objects or dirt.

I have a honda excel 2500 psi , where would the pressure relief valve be located?

Many of the excel units don't come with a pressure relief valve but instead a thermal relief valve, it really depends on the model number of the pressure washer. You should only replace the thermal relief valve if it is leaking.

You cannot wash aluminum items in a diswasher with phosphate based detergent. You'll corrode the aluminum. Best practice is to handwash any aluminum items. Phosphate over time will also etch your glasses, so I suggest always using a non-phosphate detergent - look for Seventh Generation or similar "Eco-friendly" detergents - it will save your glassware too.

6 cup only making one cup

I just had this same problem and after reading this blog I went downstairs, tightened the pot down more and it worked! I usually don't tighten it this much, but will continue to tighten it down hard until the gasket is broken in. Thank you sooooooo much!!!
